Printing Companies Can Provide Fulfillment Services
Today, many printing companies offer fulfillment services
for businesses that require kitting, packaging and shipping.
If you regularly package and ship
multiple items, including collateral or other printed materials that require picking, collating or grouping into a specific configuration (or multiple configurations), these services could provide a variety of cost-effective benefits.
What Are Kitting and Fulfillment?
When used by printing companies, the term fulfillment refers to filling orders. Kitting refers to assembling a specific list of items and arranging or placing them in a predetermined way.
So if your company regularly sends out packets of material to interested potential customers, you could look for printing companies that could handle this for you, rather than handling these duties in-house.
Many printers will use offset or digital printing to produce collateral materials, then store those materials in their warehouse. When you need a packet or kit sent to a specific person, company or list, you place the request with the printer. They pick the items to go in the kit, assemble it, pack it up and ship it for you.
How Printing Companies Fulfill Kitting Orders
Based on the client’s specifications, a printer that offers fulfillment services will have all the information they need to assemble specific packets or kits. When the client makes a request, they put the kit together per those instructions.
For example, construction companies may have marketing collaterals that include a company brochure, qualification statement, business cards and various one-sheets documenting past projects. If a potential client expresses interest in their retail construction experience, they may not want the kit they send to that business to include information about school or municipal projects.
Some printing companies can fulfill orders beyond basic printed materials. If you use a company to provide your packaging printing, they may also have the capacity to fulfill specific product orders on your behalf.
